When I got close to this amazing bridge and I was literally amazed in front of this beauty, a bridge of extraordinary historical value, also built by the Romans some like 2000 years ago and still working perfectly. The visual spectacle is unique and from the bridge you can take outstanding photos. Top attraction in the city.

You cross this bridge on the way to the amphitheatre. Walking through the arch though not as spectacular as vecchio bridge

The Bridge Ponte Pietra is one of the most central bridges Verona can be proud of. It is an ancient bridge popular for the great views over the Adige. You can take also nice pictures of the castle located on the hill in front of the city centre.

We were exploring Verona not really having a plan on going to this bridge, however we kind of just stumbled across it. It was a great photo location with the Verona hills in the background.

we enjoyed a Saturday stroll over the bright blue waters towards the castle and really enjoyed walking over this bridge and taking photos up and down stream of the beautiful villas that line the river. Well worth the stroll and the look

Myself and my husband walked along the river in Verona. It was a fabulous walk and this bridge was our finishing point. Definitely worth a visit!

Ponte Pietra, the Stone Bridge, built originally by the Romans. The bridge has undergone several reconstructions and remains one of the most important monuments of Roman Verona. It is legitimate to date the bridge prior to 89 B.C. – the year when Verona became a Latin colony – an initial bridge across the Adige, perhaps in wood, may have been... More

Ponte Pietra is a great place to capture a beautiful picture. I actually found that the best place to get the bridge as well as the castle in your pictures is from the next bridge down the river, it was near Piazza San Tomaso. I went at night and it was very beautiful. Enjoy!

Was a treat to wander over the bridge when it was so quiet in the evening. Beautifully restored giving a wonderful sense of old Verona. Love the bridges in this city :)

The bridge is beautiful. If you are coming in from the city, I would recommend walking across and getting a view from the other side. The waters of the Adige as they flow beneath sparkle and you get a beautiful view of the city along the river. The downside is the traffic on the road that runs along the river.... More
